Pee on the Carpet

Worth the damage?



The title of my blog comes from a quote I came up with regarding a constant part of my life: "Having MS is like having a new puppy in the house. You can lay down all the rules you want but sooner or later someone is going to pee on the carpet."


My husband and I had dinner out with friends that we have not seen in long time last night. We feasted at the restaurant of their choice. They picked Longhorn Steakhouse. It could have been so much worse, I suppose. Dinner was fantastic and the company was even better!

Hubby and I are brand new to the program. We made the choices we hoped were best. We chose entrees from the "under 500" menu. I splurged by having a small piece of bread with butter. Because we changed our salads to ceasar w/out the dressing they had parm cheese & croutons so that was another splurge. But the dressing was a lighter vinagrette so at least that was on the healthier side.

Due to scheduling conflicts we missed our midday snack and lunch entree. I am hoping that will offset some damage.

My weigh in was on Tuesday and this was on Wednesday night. So, it is my hope that with exercise I have time to undo the splurging. ::crosses fingers:: We did not do appetizers, dessert or drinks so it could have been a lot worse. I will see this as a general positive move in the right direction. At the very least it is nice that hubby and I are very conscious of our decisions now.

All in all I think the evening was an overall success. And if nothing else a great time was had by all.

::walks off talking to self:: "...now if only we can figure out how to get JC's veggies to taste like Longhorn's..."

Random, be brave. POST to the forums Hon. So many don't even read our blogs. They do read the posts in the forums. And you can find out if anyone is reading by subscribing to them. I post here, on my blog mostly to rant, rave, crow, and just say my mind. But, to post on the forum, (I love General, but even though I am not returning I go to that string, and to the Newbies, cause I was a newbie once) You can help folks with what you have learned.

Sad that more people don't read the blogs. That was my first stop on the community. I love reading people's journeys.
